When it comes to a neighbor here in Donelson that has a true heart for the community that grows bigger with each new Spring season, Naomi Regensburg sets the bar. Much of Donelson’s ongoing beautification efforts can be attributed to Naomi’s leadership and involvement. There are many elements to creating a more vibrant, welcoming and strong community for both business to invest and good neighbors to move to. As we all know, our central business community along Lebanon Pike has a lack of green space and beautification with a great deal of pavement and wires. Naomi’s efforts contribute a great deal to improving that situation and it continues to make a big difference.
Stanford Montessori is having their annual Fall Fest on September 19. They are also seeking vendors. See the two flyers below and come on out to support them. You’ll find your new Councilman supporting the festival by being in the dunk tank at some point during the event!
The Donelson Gateway Project’s annual Fall Work Day will be on Saturday, November 8th at 9am. Most of the help is needed at the Briley Parkway site, but we will be working at the Tollgate (Stewart’s Ferry) and Stones River Bridge sites as well. We will be spreading pine straw and planting winter color.
The Friends of Two Rivers Mansion will host their annual Holiday Historical Tours on December 12th, 13th, and 14th. This is an excellent opportunity to see the continued restoration progress and visit this unique historical treasure in Donelson decorated for the Holidays.
